West - Oak Ridge Prairie Park in Griffith
East - Wisconsin Street in Hobart
Descrption: This nearly straight trail begins at its west end in Oak Ridge Prairie Co. Park in Griffith, jogs north to Johnson Road and runs eastward through Gary to Hobart, ending at Wisconsin Street. Eventually it will run through town to link with the Prairie-Duneland Trail. An oak savannah ecosystem is a transition area between tallgrass prairie and oak woodland which receives enough sunlight and shade for species of both ecosystems to thrive simultaneously. Oak savannah was once a common occurrence in northern Indiana but has been encroached by development and disallowed to regenerate by natural fire, grazing and drought disturbances.
